2nd Annual Voices from the Heart Gala

heart logoFriends and supporters of the Franciscan Center gathered on Saturday, September 28, 2013 to enjoy a magical evening of beautiful music, good food and fellowship to benefit the Franciscan Center.

WBAL radio personality Clarence Mitchell IV, known as “C-4”, served as Master of Ceremonies for this unique event, which featured a breathtaking performance by award-winning vocalist and performer Chrystal E. Williams and pianist Jose Melendez. Antonio Caldwell, a Franciscan Center client and gifted musician, treated us to a virtuoso performance on the piano at our VIP cocktail reception.

Later that evening, Sister Eileen Quinn held the crowd spellbound as she shared beautiful reflections on “The Joy of a Franciscan Heart” – and our Executive Director, Christian Metzger, recognized the extraordinary contributions of longtime supporter Chesapeake Employers’ Insurance (formerly Injured Workers Insurance Fund) by presenting CEO Tom Phelan with the first-ever “Spirit of St. Francis Award.” It truly was a night to remember!
